According to published reports, Anderson discovered an ability to telepathically communicate with animals as if they "were speaking to her," an ability she later leveraged into a business as a psychic pet consultant. Her activities in animal communication led to her taking on clients who desired contact with deceased animals, and Anderson began working as a medium. Her paranormal abilities have at times been reported as "more accurate on telephone readings than in person," which is apparently corroborated by the mixed results of her reading with Sherry Suib Cohen. and is consistent with her later work which focuses on remote viewing.
Work with Hans Holzer:
Anderson has worked with paranormal investigator Hans Holzer on high-profile cases, most notably the Grave's End incident, a thirteen-year haunting chronicled by the mother of the Brooklyn, New York family which experienced it. The author's family experienced what they reported as physical manifestations from 1982 until Anderson and Holzer "cleansed" the house in 1995. A registered nurse, the author Elaine Mercado is a self-described skeptic who was unable to consider the possibility of paranormal activity in her home for over a decade. Holzer continues a professional relationship with Anderson, and listed her in his Psychic Yellow Pages.
Other work as a psychic:
Anderson has been hired to use remote viewing to work on homicide cases and for departments with cold file cases such as in White Plains, New York receiving "data" such as license plate digits and location addresses and motel room numbers, and on abduction cases in Trinidad and Tobago taking them to prosecution status. She has explained her ability to perceive what a remote subject is experience by saying that ""you can relive events by tapping into an object or location or transmute thoughts in time and space to locate that data. An event in history can actually be replayed over and over again in time and space if certain circumstances are occurring." She was asked by the Houdini Historical Society to contact his spirit; during the performance she claimed Houdini wanted the attendees "to believe," a phrase that is reputed to be the magician's last words, previously known only to close family members. She annually makes predictions on local radio stations, and in 2004 during one such interview, predicted the tsunami of 2004 that later struck the Indian Ocean.
